Let's say it is a perfect night out and you don't want the stress of cooking at home or the usual restaurant experience. Something different and good is needed. How about sitting outside? Start with the classic cheeseburger and an order of the best French...More

This is the ultimate roadside stand for the best hamburgers ever. You can get all sorts of toppings; sauted onions are very good. They also serve hotdogs, great french fries, and fried onions, and ice cream sandwiches and other cold treats. They don't advertise, have...More

I've been going to Clamps for over 40 years. It never disappoints! Really not too much you can say about a hamburger stand other than in the case of Clamps, the fact that it has been in business for decades and decades out to serve...More

Almost drove right by-If it was a BK or MacD's I would have-but stopped in for a burger and an order of clam strips. The burger was tasty and the clams were better than most diner fare-so for a cute little side of the road...More

I am surprised that so few have rated this local legend - but then again, it has only ever been open several months a year. This is the essence of summer in Litchfield County. Best little burger shack on the road side. A cheeseburger with...More

I can picture rolling up to this place in a Model T back in 1945. I think it has been open that long. Good burgers and dogs and superlative onion rings with outdoor seating around antique wire spools amidst the gardens in Litchfield County Connecticut....More

Ahhh what can you say that hasn't already been said. I remember going here in the 1950's. Mrs Clamp would put all the condiments on for you. It probably tasted so good because she salted it pretty heavy. Now you put your own condiments on,...More

This is a simple side-of-the-road "shack" with no phone, so I can't answer without going there. But, as everything is done to order, you probably have a good chance they will use your buns if you ask. You can always order... More
